How to check if the Sitemap is being build correctly
« on: September 19, 2008, 08:48:40 PM »
Hi, i am newby.
(1) You have installed 5 Sitemaps.. I have about 9.500.000 Sites with the products to crawl..is this enough?
     Are the new sitemaps build automatically or are they have to build manually?
(2) where can i see the changes? I looked at the files but the size of them are the same since yesterday.
(3) How long could the crawl take?
Thank you for infos .
and for better understanding.
Your newby..

Hello,

you  will have to create a scheduled task in your hosting control panel if you want to automatically regenerate sitemap from time to time (otherwise sitemap should be created manually).

The time depends on the page generation time mainly, since it crawls the site similar to search engine bots.
For instance, if it it takes 1 second to retrieve every page, then 1000 pages will be crawled in about 16 minutes.

Some of the real-world examples of big db-driven websites:
about 35,000 URLs indexed - 1h 40min total generation time
about 200,000 URLs indexed - 38hours total generation time

Hello Admin,

I donīt want to rescan now i first want to build one Sitemap.
But it stops. and the logfile is bigger but nothing is in the sitemap till now.
Now i have 3 logfiles with the crawling results but not in the sitemap.
Perhaps could you please look at it? Perhaps i have done something wrong...

If you want to make a smaller sitemap, you should use "Maximum number of URLs" option to limit it.

In case if it takes too long to create a full sitemap or there is not enough memory, the recommended way is to limit "Maximum depth level" option and created limited sitemap with main URLs. That will create a "roadmap sitemap" that will greatly help search engines to crawl your site.

Hello,

in order to create larger sitemap PHP configuration should be updated by increasing memory_limit and max_execution_time settings.
